# How are momentum and speed related?

012

###### Wiki User

Momentum is calculated by Mass * Velocity (Speed is the magnitude of Velocity). If velocity increases and mass remains constant, Momentum (measured in kg m/s) increases and if velocity decreases, momentum decreases.

Momentum is the product of velocity and mass. Velocity is related to speed (the speed, with a specification of a direction).

Very, very basically, momentum is a combination of speed and mass of the object.

An object can not have momentum with out speed because speed is what gives an oject it's momentum. Here is the equasion for momentum; momentum (P) = Mass (M) x Speed (V). So P=MV. This means without speed you have no momentum. Hope I helped, 2000AD

Momentum = mass x speed so speed = momentum/mass or V=P/m

By increasing our speed because momentum is proportional to the speed

Increasing the speed of an object will increase its momentum as well (momentum=mass*velocity).

The momentum of any moving object is (its mass) times (its speed).

Directly and linearly, if you double the speed you double the momentum.

Momentum is directly dependant on speed and mass. Depending what is the mass of the object and what speed it carries, bigger mass n higher speed carries huge momentum

Not exactly - momentum is more the build up of speed instead of speed itself. Speed is a measure of how fast you are moving, whereas momentum is how mcuh speed you're using.. If that makes sense. As defined by dictionary.com, momentum is force or speed of movement; impetus, as of a physical object or course of events.

The magnitude of its momentum is the product of its mass and speed.

They are related for if you use a lot of momentum,the force you exert will be greater.

It's a matter of physics. It's acceleration, it's speed, it's direction, and it's momentum. All of that is related to science.

"Momentum" is the product of mass x velocity. You can base your calculations on that.

momentum = mass x velocity =&gt; mass = momentum / velocity

Momentum is both speed and mass. So if two objects are traveling at the same speed then the one with more mass will have more momentum.

Momentum and velocity are directly proportional. Momentum = mass x velocity

momentum and swimming are related because you need momentum to keep you going

Momentum. Distance divided by time is speed. Mass times speed is momentum.

When the pursued plane returns the fire, a conservation of momentum in its speed happens. The momentum after the event will be equal to the momentum before the event.

Momentum would be an example of kenetic energy.
